Looking for somewhere to eat Chinese and picked this one

Some of the reviews sem strange. OK, we had to wait a while for the food but it was quite excellent. Well prepared and delicious, cannot actually say any of the various 'courses' was not very good or better. Can highly recommend it.

Some things were good, some were not. I enjoyed the duck spring rolls a lot - very tasty and a nice dipping sauce. The satay was also good but the satay sauce had a piece of grey plastic in it, which was off putting. The prawn toast was average - like frozen ones from a supermarket. The duck main course... More

Well, I don't know which restaurant 'merilina70' is referring to, but it is certainly not the restaurant I know and have visited numerous times over the past 7 years !! Ananda is always welcoming and is always ready to give advice on the extensive range of dishes when asked. I have never found Ananda 'talking too much' or preventing me... More

I can only assume that the last review was talking about a different restaurant. We had the most fantastic meal here and we didn't get charged for the water. We always ask Ananda what she recommends and her choices are always right. The staff are friendly and always happy to help. We love coming here and get many a takeaway... More

I have 2 waiters excluding my son - one does a Friday and Sunday and the other covers Saturdays. Yes they are all students earning a bit of pocket money and they may not know my menu 100% but they do try very hard and if they struggle with an enquiry, I am always there for them to call upon...

Thank you for your suggestions. Will have to re-design to include soft drinks in my new drinks menu as there was not enough space. All condiments will be given when asked so do feel free to ask. More

just had the most delicious takeaway from Singapore Orchid in Coulsdon. The food was perfect - we chose the set meal for 2, with extra Singapore noodles. It arrived exactly on time, was steaming hot, and extremely tasty. We will definitely be using this restaurant again. Thank you x
